    SoCal Edison's Grid Edge Experiment Contracts for 125MW of Batteries and Demand Response

    Southern California Edison has picked six companies to build 125 megawatts of distributed energy storage and demand response for its Preferred Resources Pilot (PRP), a long-term testing ground to learn how distributed energy and the grid can work together. Winners of this second round of PRP contracts include Advanced MIcrogrid Solutions, with a 40-megawatt contract for demand response with energy conservation and batteries; Convergent with 35 megawatts of batteries; Hecate with 15 megawatts of batteries; NextEra with 10 megawatts of batteries and 10 megawatts of demand response, NRG with 10 megawatts of solar-storage "hybrid," and and residential battery startup Swell with 5 megawatts of batteries.
